aka: Jack Cantwell
Born: 21 Nov 1923
Died: 24 Mar 1989
Signed: July 1946
Left: Apr 1947 (free); 9 June 1947 (Dumbarton)
Debut: Clyde 2-2 Celtic, League, 14 Aug 1946 (scored twice)
BiogCentre-forward Jack Cantwell scored five goals in nine appearances during his one season with the Hoops.
The former Navy man joined Celtic in July 1946 after impressing and scoring as a trialist in a game against Morton the previous month He scored a brace on his league and competitive debut but it wasn’t enough to secure the victory as Celtic were held 2-2 by Clyde at Shawfield on August 14th.
Cantwell was freed after just one year with the Celts after failing to agree new terms and he moved on to Dumbarton.
Shame when you look at his record, as 5 goals in 8 league games is a terrific return. However, Celtic were continuing their drought from the war years and management was poor (both at board and coaching level). The club was lacking, and Jack likely sufferred as a result. Maybe a better environment could have seen him achieve far more but it wasn't to be at Celtic.
